The more time goes on and the more I look at my pictures, they get more and more intensely beautiful, like timeless magic.
Thank you for being discreet, artistic and brilliant
We first met Kate at our friend's wedding – she captured their day so perfectly and beautifully, we hoped that she might be available for our wedding! Kate and Brent were just wonderful from the beginning – they took the time to meet us and understand us as a couple and our wedding and style.
Our wedding was small and intimate (with 5 guests!), it was an evening ceremony in central London just before Christmas, so capturing the lights and magic in the dark was essential. Kate and Brent somehow achieved this and made it look effortless!
We started with a small champagne reception at the Shard, where they took the most beautiful pictures of our family but also capturing the magnificence of London and the incredible structure of the Shard. We travelled to two further venues, not to mention jumping out of a black cab for some photos at sunset on Westminster Bridge and capturing some gorgeous pictures walking around Soho just after our ceremony.
Kate and Brent ensured that we were comfortable and relaxed throughout - and our wedding would not have been the same without them there! They were so lovely and fun, put us at ease and managed to work their magic and achieve the photos we dreamed of without ever 'being in the way'. Kate managed to capture our love for London, the city where we fell in love – and the true feeling of magic and how we felt on the day.
We honestly can’t express how grateful we are to you both, it’s a really incredible thing to have all of our memories captured so perfectly.
I just had to write and say how blown away we are by the film and Sarah is so happy that we did opt for the drone work as the venue looks incredible from the air! Your work is so different to most wedding films and both sets of parents are amazed (and delighted) by the quality and creativity. Do you remember how nervous we were at the prospect of being filmed? I'm not sure we truly believed you when you said if would feel effortless but it really did. Brilliant job - hope to see you both again.
What can I say.... I'm lost for words. We knew we were going to get something special but this is just unbelievable. We are so happy.
When we received our wedding photos it was an incredible memory in itself just going through all the images and re-experiencing our day as told by KHS. The photos we have will be a lifelong keep sake of what was the best day of both of our lives. I’m so glad we chose to invest in you and your skills/passion. I knew from the first time I saw some of your work that you were who we wanted and needed! So much so we didn’t confirm our date until we knew you’d be available!
I am also so happy you produced our wedding video as the synergy and story between the video and stills made our wedding day ‘memory time capsule’ even more special. I cannot imagine having one without the other as they work together so seamlessly whilst offering such different points of view. We did consider whether or not to have a video and are so glad we decided to. I would whole-heartedly recommend anyone who is lucky enough to have you photograph their wedding to not miss out on the once in a lifetime opportunity to have you also create their wedding video.
Thank you so much again for everything.
We always said that our wedding photographs would be important but we had no idea just how precious they become and are SO relieved that we did our research and invested properly. Our wedding at Blenheim Palace felt like a sureal dream and the photos tell a story that neither of us saw as a whole on the day. And thank you for being so patient and calm and understanding of those trickier moments. Also thank you for persuading us to come out again after the speeches to see the sun go down over the lake. Our only regret? Deciding not to have it filmed as well. We will see you both again - hopefully when we start a family!
I just wanted to write to you again to say how delighted we are with the results. You have delivered so much more than we ever hoped for. You have managed to capture the girls’ individual personalities to perfection as well as provide some stunning art pieces. Just exquisite. We can’t get over how beautiful the short film is – even our friends get emotional!
You have managed to capture the true character of my girls. So often you see photographs of children taken by professional photographers that are lacking depth and a real connection with the subject. Kate, by just being herself connected with my children immediately and made the shoot so much fun for them. The result is a collection of truly beautiful pictures that not only capture the real essence of my girls but also demonstrate Kate's natural artistic flair. The composition and use of light is stunning and we could not be happier.
A big heart-felt thank you for capturing Isabelle’s love of dance through your photography. Just looking at your previous work I knew how talented you are but words cannot truly describe how much you exceeded our expectations and beyond with the stunning work you have done with Isabelle. I felt emotional watching the dance celebration film as it is just so beatiful. We will treasure this for years to come. Watching you and Brent in action has been a wonderful experience, your attention to details and passion for what you do is unprecedented. Also you are both genuinely lovely people. Isabelle has loved working with you and is already looking forward to the next motion video and photoshoot. You are truly amazing.
I just want to say thank you so much for our amazing wedding photographs. When we started looking for our wedding photographers we knew straight away that byLumiere was for us. We fell in love with their style and the timeless fine art finish to their images. The other photographers that we looked at just did not come close to the consistency of quality and beauty of their images. Working with Kate & Brent was just so easy and they made us feel totally comfortable throughout our day. We believe that they are by far the number one wedding photographers in the UK! We could not be happier and look forward to having more pictures in the future when we start a family.
